Nationals' Max Scherzer: Dominant again in win over Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (4-1) gave up one earned run on four hits over six innings in Friday's 5-2 victory over the Dodgers, striking out nine and walking three.

Scherzer got the better of fellow ace Clayton Kershaw with another stellar effort that brought his ERA down to 1.36 and his WHIP to 0.76 through 33 innings to go along with a ballistic 47:7 K:BB. Scherzer can be considered pretty much completely matchup-proof at this point, but his next start that pits him against a San Francisco team that is near the bottom of the league in runs scored should only boost his prospects of putting up yet another top-end fantasy line.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Named NL Player of the Week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer was named the National League Player of the Week on Monday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

The Nats have stumbled a bit through the early part of the season, but individually their stars have been doing very well -- Scherzer is already the second Washington player to win the award in 2018 after Adam Eaton. The right-hander won both his starts last week while recording his fifth career shutout against the Braves, and his 21 strikeouts pushed his MLB-leading total to 38.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Grabs win with 11-strikeout effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (3-1) collected the win Saturday against the Rockies, allowing two runs on a hit and a walk in seven innings of work. He struck out 11.

Scherzer was utterly dominant Saturday, with the only blemish to his name being a two-run homer by Charlie Blackmon in the opening frame. After that, Scherzer retired 20 straight Rockies hitters while throwing nearly 70 percent of his pitches for strikes. The star right-hander now has a glistening 1.33 ERA on the season and will look to keep the good times rolling Friday in a road start against the Dodgers.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Fans 10 in two-hit shutout Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (2-1) dominated the Braves in Monday's win, allowing only two hits over nine shutout innings while striking out 10.

He pounded the strike zone all night, throwing 72 of 102 pitches for strikes en route to his fifth career shutout. Scherzer even had some fun as a hitter, slapping a single in the seventh inning and then stealing his first career base. He'll take a 0.90 ERA into his next start Saturday at home against the Rockies.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Struggles through five innings Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (1-1) took the loss after allowing five runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks across five innings Wednesday against the Braves. He struck out seven.

Wednesday's outing was a struggle from the get-go for Scherzer, who needed 110 pitches to get through five frames. The Braves got on the board early, as Washington's ace served up a three-run homer to Preston Tucker a few pitches after Wilmer Difo booted a routine grounder that would have gotten the Nationals out of the opening frame. While Scherzer retired seven of the next eight batters, he faltered in the fourth inning and allowed a two out, two-run double to opposing pitcher Mike Foltynewicz that put the Nats down 5-1. He'll look to bounce back in his next start, which will be a rematch against the Braves on Monday.
